Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
You pick up this quest in Senji's Corner, and the quest marker will lead you north, through Xaquang Skyway, but it may actually be better to take an alternative route, via south of Senji's Corner and then eastwards through the Shenzun Tunnels to Maatu Keep.
That outpost is located closer to Tahnnakai Temple, so in case you fail you can restart from there. Plus, you've unlocked another location where you can rest and regroup. On the downside, there is only one healer henchman in Maatu Keep (Senji's Corner has two).
Once you reach Temple Guard Bai, he will refuse to allow your party into the temple, but Mhenlo will soon appear and direct you to go help out Togo and Nika. Mhenlo is extremely autonomous in this quest. He has a specific path he takes and, unless you are familar with it, you'll find he is hard to keep track of and often seems to suddenly runs off by himself in unpredictable directions quite a distance from you to fight, making it hard to keep him alive.
Although it is unknown whether this is an occasional bug or the norm, it is possible to complete this quest EVEN if Mhenlo dies in the final fight with the afflicted. Regardless of if the quest log displays a "mission failed" notice, as long as Togo survives the last fight and you lead him back to the entrance of the temple, the quest WILL update and WILL allow you and your party to complete the quest with or without Mhenlo. If you don't follow Mhenlo, he'll go off in his own direction and die, whatever route you take to Togo and Nika. He also refuses to stay with the group during the last big fight, so if you're intent on keeping him alive, flag your party at the center and then follow him around with a healer while he runs down the hill to fight the afflicted on his own.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Be sure Mhenlo keeps up with the party if you bring minions; he often takes his time, trying to heal them along the way.
- You can clear out the afflicted before speaking to Bai to trigger the first phase, allowing Mhenlo to join the others without opposition.
- You can run solo from Nahpui Quarter to Maatu Keep. (Relatively new characters can change professions en route, in Senji's Corner.)
